Access VIRUSHere's another virtual analog synth, coming in to compete in the JP-8000, Clavia Nord-Lead etc race. Designed apparently by the guys who did the programmer units for the Microwave & Matrix 1000, it comes as a tabletop unit, with plans for a rackmount kit up & coming.
Well, I ain't tried one, so here's the spec's, and let's have some user comments please from any of you lucky ******** who have used one !!! :-)
It's 12 note poly, 8 part multi (JP users eat that !!).....and I think most importantly, has 3 stereo poly outputs.... bloody excellent !!
Each voice can be made up of two oscillators, a sub oscillator and a noise generator....you get a choice of Saw or Square waves, (square or triangle wave sub' osc').....the VIRUS also does Frequency modulation, and and Osc' sync.....hmmmmmm.
Also, outside of the vitual analog, you get a further pallette of 64 digital waves !!... so there's greaty versatility here well above the competition... let's face it, if you want to splash out some dosh on a good synth for doing your tunes, mostly, it's XX amount for the analog sound synth, then a further outlay for the digital sounds etc..... here you get the lot, albeit with limited polyphony, but it could be a life-saver as you can quickly add extra lusher or wierder sounds to the production... and beautifully, get them to the mixer on seperate outs !!
So, all the usual synth stuff PWM, 3 LFO's, 2 envelopes etc... plus 2 ....yup !!.. 2 independent 2-pole filters, each with low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject.......filter 1 can even be made into a 4 pole filter....bloody hell.....you can stack 'em as well, either in series or parallel...and filter-1 has shaper/distortion added to get even more overdrive to the res' !! ... all these combinations allow filters from 12 - 36 dB
Well, there aint alot else I can say.... But, I definately want to get a try-out with one of these babies !!... by the way, you also get 300 user patch saves, and 100 multi-setup save positions.... brilliant, especially for live stuff.
So... All-in-all this looks like a killer little box, that could grab the lead real fast !!!... everything's midi by the way control-knob wise, you can upgrade the OS with sysex for future updates.....and there's even built in FX..... Delay, Reverb & Chorus fx to date, with more to come apparently..... Plus, this unit has some real in depth & creative routing solutions for the filters, envelopes, LFO's etc.... definately a contender !!!... let's have some comments please, and I'll call the distributors asap for a demo !!
